As part of the University’s Education for Justice series, author Gerald Beyer, Ph.D., will present “Separate and Unequal? Access to Higher Education, Solidarity and U.S. Catholic Universities” on Tuesday, March 12, at 7 p.m. in the Pearn Auditorium of Brennan Hall. The lecture is free of charge and open to the public.
The talk will focus on the college debt crisis, higher education’s pricing’s impact on the middle class, and the implications of inequality on affordable education.
Dr. Beyer is a religious studies and theology professor at St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, and has written books and articles discussing ethics and inequality around the world.
The talk is one of many inequality-focused events offered on campus during the 2012-2013 academic year including lectures, movie series and student projects.
Each year the Education for Justice series picks a theme for its programming. Last year students revisited the events of 9/11 on its 10-year anniversary. This year they’re examining inequality in the world. For additional information, call the University’s Education for Justice Office at 941-4051.
